Isla Holbox Hotel Casa Barbara, Quintana Roo, Mexico

  • Great value for living the island life on Isla Holbox

    Isla Holbox – a beautiful little island north of Cancun, remains one of the best-kept secrets of the Mexican Caribbean. You won’t find any of the common downsides of popular beach destinations here. No noisy beach crowds. No large resorts. No traffic. Just miles of magnificent beaches surrounded by the cerulean waters of the Caribbean and a handful of charming, palapa-roof hotels that can easily be mistaken for authentic, tropical villages.

    One such cozy, tropical vacation getaway is the Casa Barbara Hotel. Beautifully landscaped and located on Isla Holbox’s main avenue, Casa Barbara Hotel still feels very peaceful and secluded. Once you find yourself inside, surrounded by luscious tropical gardens and the inviting lounge areas by the pool, it is hard to believe that the Isla Holbox’s main square with the town’s many shops, taverns and restaurants is located just a few steps away.

    Follow a white sandy road from the Casa Barbara Hotel and it will take you to the Isla Holbox’s postcard-perfect beach (10-minute walk) and a ferry dock station (5 minutes’ walk from the hotel). Or spend a few hours relaxing by the pool. There isn’t a more ideal place to enjoy your siesta naps, read in a hammock or make plans for the day.

    Nice design to keep you smiling on this Caribbean island

    Inside, Casa Barbara Hotel is equally welcoming and lovely. The rooms are spacious, air-conditioned and lovingly decorated with local wood furnishings and cream colors. Every room comes with a private bathroom, free Wi-Fi internet and satellite TV.

    The Casa Barbara Hotel rooms are divided in two categories: Superior Room Azalea and Superior Room Hibiscus, both featuring a garden view. The Azalea king-size bedrooms are perfect for couples, while Hibiscus category rooms are furnished with two double beds and can comfortably accommodate up to 4 people.

    The attractive rates and charm of local traditions combined with the comforts of your own home, is what sets Casa Barbara Hotel apart from the rest of Isla Holbox accommodations. Although, with only 22 comfortable rooms, a great location and the best rates in town, Casa Barbara rooms get booked fast! So if you are considering staying on Isla Holbox or planning a snorkeling tour with whale sharks, add Casa Barbara Hotel to your inquiry as soon as possible!
